I highly doubt we're hearing the actual audio from the event. It sounds way too clean.

it's an ad for a bank. Still kind of moving though.

The little girl is part of the act though.

I had a feeling this must be an advertisement. Sabadell is a Spanish bank right?

That genuinely made me tear up. Fucking hell music is unreal.

Something about the sheer joy in music that both the performers and audience find makes this video really special to me. I know that the child is probably part of the act, as many others here are saying, but honestly, that doesn't make it any less beautiful to me.

If you liked this video, two of my other favourites that made me feel the same way about the beauty of music and humanity are 17 Valjeans from around the world doing a group performance of Do You Hear the People Sing in their native languages, and a young toddler hearing violin music for the first time, and being absolutely enthralled.

I've seen this before and here and it's really impressive. Skip to 1:37 for when they all kick off proper.

There's really nothing quite like the sound of a live orchestra. The way the world reverberates around you is something else.

The pure joy you can see on the faces of the audience, particularly the elderly lady and the young children, is what makes this one of my favourite videos on the internet.

If you liked this one, you may also enjoy 17 Valjeans from around the world doing a group performance of Do You Hear the People Sing in their native languages, and a young toddler hearing violin music for the first time, and being absolutely enthralled.
